I had a solo dinner tonight and left beyond satisfied. My server was personable and knowledgeable about the menu. My cocktails/entree/dessert all came out sooner than I expected and my water glass was never empty. I especially loved the berry crème brulee! What a great experience.

My husband and I had our first date at Bud's six years ago and we decided to go back to celebrate on our anniversary. The food was fantastic and they gave us a mini bottle of champagne to celebrate.

Fantastic food and service, but a bit pricy. However, it’s the kind of ‘pricy’ you don’t mind paying for… you just can’t go there as often as you’d like!

Always a great place for lunch or dinner. Staff are always helpful and cheerful. Ken Lurie (chef/owner) always comes out of the kitchen to greet his customers and talk about his menu. It's casual but a white linen restaurant. I have never been disappointed at Bud's. The restaurant is on the smaller side so it can become a little loud but it still can be intimate.

The food was very good. This was our second visit there and the food was just as good as the first. The service however was not great both times. We had the same waitress both times. She is very forgetful, we had to ask several times for the same things or ask someone else anfter waiting 10+ mins for something that was asked for more than once. The wait to place an order for drinks, apps and dinner was very long.

The food and service were excellent! My husband had the soft shell crab appetizer and said it was one of the best he’s ever had. My filet mignon was cooked perfectly. Our waitress was friendly and checked in on us frequently making sure everything was to our liking. We will definitely visit Bud’s again!

Two things: The bread should not be toasted for the hot roast beef sandwich and the sangria needs to be darker and more alcohol added. Other than those two things, it was stupendous!!

My wife and I dined on a Saturday. We did make reservations shortly before going. We were greeted and showed to a table immediately. Our waitperson was fun and knowledgeable. We paired a great bottle of wine with some mouthwatering steaks, recommended by our server. The chef even came out and talked with us for a few minutes. Can’t say enough about the staff. Very clean restaurant with COVID safety measures in place and enforced. Get out and eat at this great establishment!

Do not judge the appearance of an older building. Very clean. Best salmon we have every had. Crab cakes were good and staff was amazing. Recommended the seafood eggroll. Food came of hot and fresh. Save room for dessert. Made in house and will be returning. Fantastic first experience.

Forgot to place this review so I apologize for forgetting dish names.

First time dining at Bud’s on the fine dining side. Wonderful experience. The highlights were their “cream cheese poppers” and egg roll appetizers.

I highly recommend this little gem located north of Westminster, MD! While this is a small venue (probably larger when the bar and outdoor areas are open), the ambience was perfect! The decor is clean and classy, with thoughtful additions like an etched glass pane between an open window frame and the foyer to prevent breezes and noise from affecting guests sitting at nearby tables. The cocktail I had was delicious as were the wines my father and I had with our lunch. The food was some of the best I've had in recent memory --so often even upscale restaurants have food that is mediocre...not the case at Bud's! The scallops were perfectly seared and even the spinach was really tasty. Our server was delightful, too. I cannot recommend Bud's enough and am already looking forward to my next visit. One last note...I have not gone to many restaurants given COVID-19, let alone taken my 85-year old father out to eat. Bud's has a strict mask policy and it was evident that they take sanitizing and social distancing seriously.

Food was good, unfortunately service was very slow. It felt like we were only 1 of a few couples in the restaurant. Seafood sautée was great. Roast beef was good. Food was good. The service was really disappointing.
